Jace Amaro - New York Jets Amaro was finally cleared to play against the Titans this Sunday, and he caught the one pass thrown his way for 20-yards in the Jets' win. Hopefully he will get a few more opportunities against the Patriots this week.

Michael Crabtree - San Francisco 49ers Michael Crabtree had 3 catches for 19 yards in the 49ers loss to the Seahawks.

Manny Ramirez and Louis Vasquez - Denver Broncos The Broncos' offensive line continues to gel. Our big uglies, Manny Ramirez and Louis Vasquez, are doing well in their new positions and creating space for the run game, according to OC Adam Gase.

"I think that whole group has done a good job since we made that change," Gase said Thursday. "He's done a good job of getting to the second level. Manny and Louis have done a good job on that right side, making sure we've been solid in protection, and they've been really good in the run game. I think that group as a whole has done a really good job, especially the last three weeks."

Wes Welker - Denver Broncos Inconsistent production continues for Wes Welker, as he only hauled in two passes for 16 yards this week. More mysterious is his "prank" on Tom Brady that he told about recently. You can watch video here of Welker telling the story, which includes UGG boots and a jock strap to ESPN the Magazine. Welker and Kingsbury collaborated on pranks while at Texas Tech, and Welker seems to be continuing the tradition.

LaAdrian Waddle - Detroit Lions Tough break for LaAdrian Waddle, as his great season comes to an end with a partial tear of his ACL during the Lions' 16-14 win over the Vikings. The Lions will place him on season-ending injured reserve. This is such a sad end to his season with the Lions this year, as they seem to have high hopes heading into the post-season.

Danny Amendola - New England Patriots Danny Amendola was only targeted once for an 11-yards gain, but he had 54 all-purpose yards, as he continues to return punts for New England.

Cody Davis - St. Louis Rams Cody Davis continues to contribute on special teams for the St. Louis Rams.
